I don't know how I missed this place for so long, but there's a great model store called "Granddad's Hobby Shop" in the DC suburb of Annandale. I started going there regularly about 3 weeks ago.

Don't tell me it's just a coincidence that my daughter called me this week to tell me that I'm going to be a granddad! She just learned that she is pregnant.

Among my first thoughts were:
  1. I'm getting OLD!
  2. I'm going to have to child-proof my house and move my models to higher ground!

Good luck with the new addition! I will have to check out that hobby store. I only live an hour away from DC. Do they carry a wide variety of kits? resin?

They seem to specialize more in railroad (lots of scales available) and military (planes, ships, armor). Lots of kits and upgrade parts (Eduard, Cobra Co., etc.), lots of good quality tools. You can take a virtual tour at their website: Granddad's Hobby Shop.

Many congrats ilbasso, sort of a double whammy so to speak :)
Remember the plan for the wee one some years from now
"i'll let you play with the models as soon as you learn how to build them"

And let this be a lesson to you about frequenting hobby shops :D

Again, congrats to you and your family !
Go easy
